During your test session it can be helpful to ignore a few tests. The xml element named ignore indicates that you don’t want to run a test. The test runner (Gallio or NUnit) does not run the test or tests marked with this metadata. The progress bar will turn yellow if a test is not run and the test will be mentioned in the reports as not run.
Note that even if the test is ignored the xml syntax must be respected: if the xml syntax is not verified the test-suite will not be loaded!

You can also specify why this test should be ignored. This information will be displayed in the test report. To do this add a text to the ignore element.
